Audit & Compliance

Conducting a thorough review of your policies and process will ensure that you are compliant and following current legislation.

It is vital that your business is operating within New Zealand employment legislation. As an employer, it is your obligation to ensure that the employment agreements, policies, and practices are up to date and compliant.

Our experts will conduct a thorough review of your policies and processes, ensuring that you are compliant and following current legislation.

Breaching employment standards can result in $50,000 fines for individuals or $100,000 for a company. Directors or senior managers can also be held accountable for these breaches if they knowingly or intentionally were involved in violations. 

We understand there’s a mountain of things to keep on top of, and the risk of getting it wrong can be disastrous. 

Let us take the stress away by auditing your records, systems, and processes. Not only will we find the problem, we will sort it.
